Poems for a Departing Friend.

LINNY LEAVING

All of us, we are grieving
over golden Linny leaving.
Aah as one’s heart is older it does handle such realities bolder
than the ones who dream of futures being the past.
The New is here at last,
brought in by You
Who leave us
Linny
Here where we are now somehow always here
Always with you dear
Linny
You in us and we in you. This is true.
What we do was done to us
No fuss. Now, in the New,
we are the ones who decide how we feel.
The absence a living wound.
The wound a place of life.

LINNY LEAVING 2

Old friends, good friends, human goals, human ends,
Rainbow people, all ‘a we.
Here we see ourselves gathered in each others eye
to say Goodbye to
Linny.
Our Linny, our love, our turtle dove, our sweet girl
Leaving.
Herself set free from what wee here see.
Free. Linny’s primal self. Her Self Elf. Free.
New chapter. New verse. Evolution.
Love lacing worlds, continents, cities…
Wherever you are Linny our hearts are one with you.
